What's New at Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Project

Call for Carriers!
Spaying and neutering 8,000 cats means a lot of cat carriers come through the doors at FCSNP. They can always use donations of carriers for clients who cats in carriers which are less than ideal for cats to recover in after their spay or neuter surgery: a carrier that breaks, one that’s too small for a big cat to stretch out in, or one large carrier containing a litter of kittens who need to be separated while they wake up from anesthesia, for example. Clients who need carriers are charged a small transfer fee so they can keep the carrier and have a safe method for transporting their cat the next time they need to do so.

If you’d like to donate one or more carriers but don’t have them on hand, try looking for them at thrift stores rather than spending full price. Nextdoor and local Buy Nothing groups are other possibilities. You might even want to check with your friends or your vet to see if they have any carriers to donate!

FCSNP can use hard-sided carriers in any size appropriate for a cat. (14" x 14" x 24" is about as large as is practical.) You can drop them off at FCSPN's Lynnwood location Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., or email the Renton clinic at to arrange a drop-off time there.

Events and Services at Purrfect Pals

Free Cat Spay and Neuter Clinic Fridays by appointment at the Purrfect Pals clinic in Arlington. Donations are encouraged but not required. Please call 360-652-9611 or email to schedule an appointment.
